A city that is famous the wcrld over for its hospitality, gayety and bridges. San Francisco has long taken pride in the fact that she has a repu­tation througout the Fleet of always giving a warm welcome to the Navy. This year she is planning on liv­ing up to that reputation as indicated by the following tentative schedule of events in connection with the Gold­en Gate Bridge Fiesta. This prelimin­ary schedule was furnished to the Commander in Chief by the civilian committee and is subject to conform­ation and changes. Further details will be posted from time to time in the morning orders as they become avail­able. This coming Friday afternoon as we steam' under the majestic portals of the World's largest and most mag­nificent single span sus pen s ion bridge, we will be taking part in a ceremony that is tribute to the tri­umph of American Engineering ge­nius. It is the final phase of an en­gineering project that many of us have, in our various passages through the Golden Gate, seen grow from a mere dream to the now completed bridge which has cost some $ 35,000, 000. It is the completion of another key link in the proposed All Pacific Coast Highway System extending from Alaska to Patagonia. The Golden Gate Bridge is a mere­4~ OO foot span swung on two 746 foot towers; thousands of tons of steel resting upon each of the four 169 ton cable- saddles that surround each of the tower legs. The 100,000 tons of steel required to build the Golden Gate Bridge would fully load a train 20 miles long. The concrete used in building this bridge equals the displacement of ten battleships of 33,000 tons each; in other woI'ds the concrete required in the construction of the Golden Gate Bridge would build two 10 foot sidewalks on each side of a highway from Omaha to Chi­cago, a distance of 516 miles or one sidewalk 10 feet wide and 1032 miles long. The two 36th inch cables of the Golden Gate Bridge required 80,000 miles of wire. This amount would be sufficient to erect a standard wire fence six feet in height on both sides of the main highway from Canada to the Mexican border, a distance of ( Continued on Page 2.)
